The highlight of the evening featured Latvian Artur Gorlov up against Neil Aquino of Germany. The pair contested for World Kickboxing Network International super cruiserweight title.

The bout scheduled for three rounds in oriental kickboxing (K-1 rules) didn’t go the distance. It was all over in the first round, when the representative of the country-host scored the win by way of knockout, consequently taking a prestigious belt.

In the main event Iddi Mohamedi Mkwela (7-1-1) of Tanzania suffered the first defeat in his career when he faced Latvian Andrejs Podusovs (15-10-1). The latter earned IBA International Lightweight title by decision. The undercard featured local fighters squaring off against international opponents representing Georgia, Lithuania, Spain, Poland, Germany, Guinea and Argentina.
